Stars flock to the high street

default 

Nothing beats the warm glow of knowing some of your favourite style icons wear high street too. It's gratifying that stylistas who could spend every day decked head to toe in Prada can't resist popping into Topshop for a fast fashion fix or scooping up endless supplies of skin tight jersey at American Apparel too. US stars seem to love ToSho (perhaps they're trying to prove their ahead of the trends as the store launches in New York this spring); the Brit girls are shopping everywhere from Whistles to Urban Outfitters and as for Lindsay Lohan - she's even been hitting Lipsy, formerly favoured by WAGabees. And considering the knack our Brit high street stores have of releasing some too-good-to-be-true pieces that look more catwalk than a floor length Oscar de la Renta gown, it's hardly surprising. Add to this the lightening speed in which catwalk trends are translated to the high street and it's no wonder you can pick out some seriously fashion forward pieces. Even better news is that the S/S ‘09 drops are starting to trickle in (whoopee!), so you better get there before Mischa Barton does...
